Publisher's Summary

Discover Proven Strategies to Finally Get in Shape and Exercise on a Regular Basis for the Rest of Your Life

Everywhere you go, you see gyms, videos, and books about exercise, advertising how they can help you get in shape fast and easy. You've probably even put some money down before, vowing that this was the year you'd get in shape, lose that extra weight, and become the energetic person you know is hiding inside you.

Unfortunately, life happens, and you fall into the habit of "I'll start tomorrow". Your motivation drops, and your self-discipline fails to push you through to achieve your goals. You begin to make excuses: You'll be really sore after working out, it's been too long since you've last exercised, you don't have willpower, and you think you're too weak or otherwise unfit for exercise. There was that one time you started a program, but you couldn't keep up with the weekly or monthly goals, so you got frustrated and gave up.

How to Build Self-Discipline to Exercise is a practical guidebook on how to introduce exercise into your life and keep it there. In this audiobook, you'll learn:

  • Why the most common type of motivation people use to exercise is usually ineffective
  • How to overcome procrastination and finally start exercising
  • How to find time to exercise despite a hectic schedule (and surprising math that shows you actually lose time when you don't make time for exercise)
  • Practical tricks and tips to stay motivated forever
  • How to enjoy exercise while still getting the most powerful benefits of it (hint: if your workout involves "work", it's not a good workout)

When put together and acted upon, the six chapters in this book - supported by over 80 references to scientific studies and credible experts - will help you form a new habit and make one of the most important changes you'll ever make in your life.

    "Good info"

    Good practical tips to use. Narration is somewhat dry, doesn't take away from the info though.

    "Less than engaging"

    The tips given here are decent motivators. However, they are completely eclipsed by the narrator's endless droll reading-the-script style. If I gave a presentation at work like this, everyone would be texting on their cell phones, talking or falling asleep. Ugh.

    "Disappointing"

    The title really got me excited to read this book but as I listened it did not do what the title made me believe. The narration was awful and that element is very important in a motivational self help book.

    "Good content. Boring reader."

    I got a lot out of the content of this book. The advice provided is mostly practical (except the part about hiring a housecleaner). I did not care much for the reader. He was just dry and it felt like listening to a boring lecture. Overall I'd still recommend this book of you're interested in making exercise a daily routine.
